Examples of abominable in a Sentence

  1. Hulusi Akar:

    Any jet that violates our airspace will be treated as a hostile target that must be shot down and prevented from achieving its goals, the Syrian military statement said. It was not immediately clear whether the statement referred to friendly Russian jets in addition to Turkish aircraft. Migrants arrive at the village of Skala Sikaminias, on the Greek island of Lesbos, after crossing on a dinghy the Aegean sea from Turkey, Sunday, March 1, 2020. ( AP Photo/Michael Varaklas) The statement came shortly after the Syrian army shot down a Turkish drone over the town of Saraqeb in Syrias Idlib, according to military-run media. Turkish Defense Minsiter Hulusi Akar, speaking from military headquarters near the Syrian border, said Turkey aimed to confront Syrian government forces rather than Russian troops. Hulusi Akar called on Moscow to persuade Syrian President Bashar Assad to withdraw to 2018 cease-fire lines on the edges of Idlib. Referring to losses inflicted on Syria, Hulusi Akar said Turkey had neutralized more than 2,200 Syrian troops, 103 tanks and eight helicopters. The Spring Shield operation, which was launched following the abominable attack in Idlib on Feb. 27, continues successfully.

Can that be becoming, of which God has set forth the deformity? Can that be noble which God resists and is determined to abase? Can that be laudable, which God call abominable.

  5. Stephen Crane:

    Think as I think said the man, or you are abominable. You are a toad. And after I had thought on it, I said I will then, be a toad.
